Wordless Wednesday: Freedom at stake …

    1. As you could guess, I chose this photo as a symbolic one, connecting the father of our nation and the values he upheld, and what’s happening to the freedom and free speech in our country…

      He’s been made just a show piece …

    1. The character this person has chose to mimic is the father of our nation, ‘Mahatma Gandhi’ who fought against the British empire and led the freedom movement of India.

      Now, in the same country, our own government is acting as a colonial power and restricting the freedom of a section of the society. I had all things in my mind when I posted this image 🙂

      Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your thoughts, Victor 🙂

  1. Sreejith I always appreciate when you complete the background behind your posts in the comments. There is a lot going on in that head of yours. Thank you for reminding us of the need to recall our history and the battles fought to make us a better nation (whichever nation), but also the need to recall how very easy it is slide back into past atrocities. I am in fear for my own country, which seems to be trying to demonize a couple of groups right now, and attacking the free press. Fighters like Mahatma Gandhi showed us how to resist.

  2. I appreciated your commentary as well as the photo. I have stopped wondering what is happening to our world, as it’s all too evident what direction we’re going. I watched a documentary on Dolores Huerta last night, a woman who advocated for the farm workers in the U.S. Her slogan was “Si, Se Puede” or “Yes, We Can.” Dolores Huerta was herself influenced by Gandhi.

  3. Your post today is profound, Sreejith. I really appreciate the loving expression here, in the symbolic and touching photo, as well as your wisdom in the comments. The work of Gandhi toward peace and freedom must never dwindle, and the strength that you show, and those around you with similar courage and conviction, is important and necessary.
